Default Louisiana cookbook suggestions

I'm trying to find a couple of cookbooks for Louisiana cuisine. I know there's a difference between New Orleans and Cajun, but I'm just looking for some basics like gumbo, jambalaya, and etouffee. I'd prefer to stick with more homestyle than gourmet recipes.

If there's any group of people that can answer any cooking question, it's the people here, so any and all suggestions are appreciated.

I have a few bookmarked or are you looking for hard copy for a gift?

I have enjoyed the recipes from "Justin Wilson's Homegrown Louisiana Cookin'". Nothing fancy. Just good stuff.

I agree. I would go with Emeril's "Louisiana Real & Rustic". His other ones may get a bit too fancy for what JD08 wanted.

John Folce is a well known Cajun chef and his recipes are awesome. The lastest one out is "After the Hunt". The books are a bit pricy but make great gifts and coffee table books plus the recipes are yummy

I'm just interested in a few basic recipes. It's getting nice outside and it's time to find ways to spend my weekends once football season is over.

I have the Prudhomme Family Cookbook, which is interesting reading. It does have some recipes that are from Paul, but, many are from his siblings and mother.

The other books I have, are unfortunately not available in general distribution, they were books that were picked up in small shops compiled by local fisherman's associations. While this comment seems worthless upfront, I offer it because it is an excellent way to get recipes that are sub-regional and spring from the way locals cook for themselves.

A friend of mine from NOLA gave me a copy of his favorite. I've been using it for years now with great success.
The New Orleans Cookbook by Rima and Richard Collin
Hardcover ISBN 0-394-48898-9
Paperback ISBN 0-394-75275-9
The subtitle is long, but tells the story:
"The Most Authentic and Reliable Gathering of Great Cajun and Creole Recipes From the City's Grand Restaurants and Modest Cafes, From Mansions and From Country Kitchens"

One of my online favorites, and I don't share many!

Try these links. John Folse's web site. Has alot of great recipes. Gumbo Pages is also a good source for Louisiana cooking. John Folse has a great recipe called Crawfish and Andouille Fettucini. It's really good. I've used the recipe and also substituted shrimp for the crawfish and it was excellent.

Gumbo Pages has a great jambalaya recipe that I use. IMO, Zatarains rice is what I use as it does not clump or stick together. If you can't get Zatarains rice, wally world has their version. It is par-boiled rice. give it a try.

Different New Orleans to Cajun to Creole. Homestyle Cajun usually brings
in quite a bit of the creole influence. I ran into a great home style recipes
paperback book in the early 80's. When I get home tonight I'll look it up
for you.

Also, try the chicken fricassee. It's AMAZING.

I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
